Lake St Clair Smallmouth Bass Fishing | How To Catch Smallmouth Post Spawn On Mile Roads 2022

Thanks to my buddy Eric for bringing me out for a great time on Lake St Clair catching smallmouth bass! I threw a green pumpkin Zoom super salty tube on a 1/4oz VMC swimbait jig head, paired on a Daiwa Procaster 80 combo with 12lb Seaguar Invisix. I also threw a STORM Largo Shad 4” swimbait, also on a 1/4oz VMC swimbait jighead, paired with a Piscifun Phantom X baitcaster with a Halo Starlite rod.

Those two things worked consistently, while some other go-to’s didn’t do anything for me. Those were the Strike King coffee tubes, Savage Gear goby and the ZMan TRD ned rig.

We had a great time and it was a beautiful day smashing them smallies!
